Earlier in the year a friend of my Mam gave me a half knitted jumper in Richard Poppleton’s Rimini. Her daughter had started knitting it and couldn’t be bothered to finish it. I pulled it all out and wound it into balls with the intention of knitting a Summer top with it. Of course Summer came and went and I never did make that top.
Last week I decided to knit a tension swatch with it and work out if there was enough to make a jumper. Using Knitware and my handy set of scales I worked out that there would easily be enough to make a long sleeved jumper.
So far I’ve only knitted the back:
When I can motivate myself I’ll knit the rest of it.
It’s knitted on the Bond so I had to pack my SK280 away so that I could set the Bond up on the knitting table.
Before I started on this jumper I used up the 10 oz of Lister Lavenda Double Crepe that I mentioned in a previous post. I wasn’t sure what to make with it as there was so little of it – this was the best I could come up with:
This was also knitted on the Bond. I know it’s plain and boring but I really couldn’t think of anything else to do with the wool.
talk to you later,
